Ranch Dip with a Secret Healthy Ingredient

While perusing pinterest recently, I came across a simple idea-to make ranch dip healthier, mix your ranch packet with non-fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.  I pinned the idea and figured I would come back to it.  So the other day as I was picking up a few items at the grocery store, I happened to notice ranch packets and I remembered my pin, so I grabbed it.  A few days later when I was ready to make the dip, I went back to the store to get my yogurt.  Yes, I realize that it probably seems silly to most people-why didn't I pick up both ingredients at the same time?  Who knows?  I do things at random.
Anyhow, it came together just as simply as regular ranch dip-just mix the 2 ingredients together.  The boys tried it with chips and had no clue I switched out the main ingredient.  And, no, I still haven't told them.  Hmmm...I wonder if they read this blog? My hubby said it would probably suit veggies better than chips-and realisticially that makes sense-if you're trying to eat healthier you should be reaching for veggies over chips anyhow.

Realistically would I make this again?  Yes, probably.  The main thing that would stop me?  I don't normally make dip anyhow, so it is an out-of-the-ordinary thing for me to make.  But if I was in the mood for dip, yes, I would do it again.
